  • Re: Introduction to Orthodoxy Book Recommendations

    Possible more catechetical than you are thinking, but I would suggest The Law of God by Archpriest Seraphim Slobodskoy Orthodox Christianity Vol I-V by Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev The Rainbow series by Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko These Truths We Hold (conveniently available here on Logos).

    [quote user="R. Mansfield"]What about the St. Athanasius Academy Septuagint (SAAS),[/quote] There are a couple of projects to create English language versions of the Bible from Orthodox sources, but none that has received any official backing or liturgical use (at least that I'm aware of). As a study bible, that may well be a very good option, though

    Also, you may find value in Reading Augsburg and Constantinople. It was a series of letters between the Lutheran theologians at Tubingen University in Germany, and Patriarch Jeremiah II of Constantinople. While there are likely significant theological differences between Lutherans (especially immediately after the reformation) and modern day Pentecostals

    There are several books of saints, one of them is even available on Logos: https://www.logos.com/product/173681/a-daily-calendar-of-the-saints I would also suggest the Prologue of Ochrid. It's not on logos, but can be accessed at the wayback machine, conveniently linked by day here: http://www.rocor.org.au/?page_id=925 St. Dimitri of Rostov did a monumental

    How could I have forgotten the Ancient Christian Commentaries Series?! That's a great resource. St.Theophylact's commentaries are also highly regarded, and sadly missing from my shelf. I have concerns with Fr. Paul Tarazi (see http://orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/fr-paul-tarazi-from-study-to-heresy.aspx ). And of course, every Orthodox Christian should

    Hamilton, I would caution against trying to understand the Orthodox (or Catholic) Church from books. It's a bit like trying to experience the Grand Canyon by looking at a map of Arizona. You see the territory, but you miss the point. Returning to the original question, I would suggest the Septuagint, which was the version of the Bible that Jesus and

  • Re: Essential reference works

    MJ's note ends with a quote that sums up the Orthodox view on theology very nicely (and riffs of Evagrius of Pontus): Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship." [quote user="MJ. Smith"] This is the largest gap between Orthodox and Catholic - a cultural

  • Re: Essential reference works

    I meant no disrespect to those who aren't Orthodox. If you are looking for the theological views of a particular group, it makes more sense to read the books from that group than to read something else. Calvin's Institutes would teach me very little about the Theology of the Roman Catholic Church, while The Catechism of the Catholic Church would teach

  • Re: Essential reference works

    I was hoping MJ would post a response. :) The Orthodox Church never stopped believing in God's ability to work miracles through his saints, and that's really never been a point of contention. The biggest points of contention are over the calendar (should we use the "new Julian" or the old Julian calendar), and should the Patriarch of Constantinople

  • Re: Essential reference works

    Well since theology is the study of God, I would have to say that the primary deficit in non-Orthodox books of theology (at least from an Orthodox perspective) is that they are wrong. Also, Orthodoxy has never been overly concerned with systematically organizing anything. It is probably the single most disorganized organized religion I've ever seen

    Thank you for the well thought out reply, Hamilton. I will admit the intent was less to gather resources than generate discussion and traffic in the Orthodox products forum. I appreciate your contribution. :)

  • Essential reference works

    Which reference works (on or off logos) do you consider essential in either bible study or sermon prep? Prior to getting Logos I would have listed: Young's Analytical Concordance of the Bible The Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary Catena Aurea A good English Dictionary These Truths We Hold Logos makes Young's somewhat redundant, and has allowed me

  • Re: Who is in charge of orthodox books?

    I believe that Daniel Motley is in charge of the Orthodox offerings at Faithlife, and Ben Amundgaard is the bible study products manager. I've asked them about this, in part because many of the books that I would find exceedingly useful in logos are not available, and he has indicated that it is a combination of low demand (which is a chicken and egg

  • Eastern Liturgical Question

    How much interest would there be among Verbum users in having access to Eastern Christian liturgical resources? Faithlife already offers the Lenten Triodion and the Festal Menaion, but doesn't have the Pentecostarion, the weekly Octoechos, or the Menaion, and none of them are linked to work with the Verbum liturgical view. I asked if this was something

  • Re: Liturgical view?

    Well I would like to point out that there are Byzantine Catholics who would use these materials too, so maybe we can sneak in the back door with Verbum. I'm just amazed at what Faithlife thinks I would be interested in as an Orthodox Christian. On the other hand, I'm also amazed that they don't have the Breviary.

  • Liturgical view?

    Hello all. I know that Logos is missing a lot of the liturgical books that we need as Orthodox, but I'm wondering if I am the only person that would really like to see the Orthodox packages support the Liturgical view in Verbum? If you are Catholic you can click to the liturgical view and see the saints of the day, the daily readings, and the liturgical

    Ben, I'm sure you could probably reach out to some of your Orthodox users for assistance. I know you have worked with St. Vladimir's And St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminaries, and I can assure you that both locations are chock full of (admittedly very busy) Professors, Priests, and Deacons, who could offer valuable insight into what Orthodox

    Question related to this. How does the pulling of the Orthodox Platinum package impact those who had already purchased the Orthodox Platinum package? Is this something that will be coming back with the Logos 7 base packages?
